Since 1969, when Byron and Virginia Hardin opened their first location in Ocean Beach, Hodad's has been a legendary burger joint in San Diego. With an atmosphere that borders on kitschy tourist trap but somehow manages to stay authentic, this is a must-visit location for anyone visiting the city. However, what makes it even more awesome is that it is more than just a "cool place" to grab a bite,…

I've got a problem - and my guess is that some of you guys do too sometimes. I'm jonesing for a kick ass guys trip somewhere abroad but unfortunately my guy friends are all busy or broke, so what to do?

Unfortunately, this typically results in clothes that are…

It's that time of year again, a great time to gather with friends and avoid the cold by sharing stories and alcoholic beverages. That means it is the perfect time to enjoy some Mike's Hard Lemonade. Along with drinking and having fun with friends there will be the inevitable selfie taking but this year you can actually win some great prizes when you share those great pictures online as part of…

Wine vending machines, delicious pizza, and good friends to share it with - what more do you need in life? That's exactly what I found at San Diego's Toast Enoteca & Cucina when I visited there a couple weeks ago and we had a fantastic dinner that would be equally good as a "date night" or as a place to hang out with the guys after a Padres game.
